This cutie is named Ethan!

I love the name Ethan. According to the Baby Name Finder, it's of Hebrew origin and means "strong." Nice.

Ethan was the third most popular baby name in 2008 according to the Social Security Administration. Name rankings for 2009 aren't available yet, but I'll bet Ethan is still right up there. I'm the kind of girl who usually goes for a name that's not quite so popular, but for Ethan, I'd make an exception. I think I might even like it for a girl.

Famous folks named Ethan include: Ethan Allen (a famed soldier in the Revolutionary War); Ethan Hawke (actor, writer); Ethan Frome (fictional character in the novel of the same name by Edith Wharton);

There are over 8200 moms on CafeMom with boys named Ethan.

What do you think of the name?
